Description

Martina Josephina Catalina Cucaracha is a beautiful cockroach. When she is old enough to be married, her mother gives her a lace shawl and her father gives her a seashell comb. Then Abuela, her grandmother, gives her some shocking advice: As soon as someone asks to marry you, I want you to spill coffee on his shoes. At first, Martina is skeptical of her Abuela's unorthodox suggestion. Soon Martina is wooed by a succession of gallant suitors, Don Gallo the rooster, Don Cerdo the pig, and Don Lagarto the lizard. As hot coffee is splashed on the shoes of each gentleman, his explosive reaction reveals his churlish nature, failing the Coffee Test, she wonders if a little green cockroach can ever find true love. Finally, only the gardener Pérez, a tiny brown garden mouse, is left. But what will happen when Martina offers him some Café Cubano? After reading this sweet and witty retelling of the Cuban folktale, you ll never look at a cockroach the same way again.
